The bar is inside the brewery so nothing fancy but the owner and his bartenders are the nicest people you could ever meet. They usually have 8 ti 10 beers on tap of a wide variety.

Did a quick "tour" earlier this Spring. Finding the building is a little difficult as they don't have a sign out front.

The brewery itself is housed in a long farm building split between a shipping area on one end and the brewing equipment, vats, and bar on the other. I put quotes "tour" as the operation is in plain sight, but there was a part time employee who was happy to explain their brewing process and show off the equipment.

The real reason to check out Big Muddy is the beer. For $6 you get a souvenier glass and a tasting of every beer they have on tap. For us that was 9 different brews, which included some seasonal selections along with their regular brews.

Visting Big Muddy is a great way to spend a weekend afternoon.
